Online Course: HEC-HMS Modelling

A live and interactive online course covering HEC-HMS, run over two days.

The Hydrologic Modeling System (HEC-HMS) is a free program developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. HEC-HMS simulates the complete hydrologic processes of dendritic watershed systems including infiltration, unit hydrographs, and hydrologic routing.

Date: Thursday, 7 November 2019 - Thursday, 14 November 2019

Time: 10:30am (Australia/Sydney; find your local time)

Cost: AUD$295 (about $200 US dollars)

Please join us for this interactive online course (see dates below), covering HEC-HMS, a free rainfall-runoff program developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. HEC-HMS also accounts for evapo-transpiration, snowmelt, and soil moisture and can be used in conjunction with other software for studies of water availability, urban drainage, flow forecasting, urbanisation impacts, reservoir spillway design, flood damage reduction, floodplain regulation, and systems operation.

Course Format  will be as follows: 

  • 2 live and interactive sessions of two hours each
    • Thursday, 7 November, 10:30am -12.30pm (Sydney Time)
    • Thursday, 14 November, 10:30am – 12.30pm (Sydney Time)
  • Sessions are recorded & uploaded to the learning platform (within 24hrs after session) if you cannot attend live.

This course covers:

  • Overview of Precipitation-Runoff Processes
  • Rainfall Loss Rates Computation
  • Channel Routing
  • Basin Model Manager
  • Meteorologic Model Manager
  • Control specifications and time-series data
  • Conducting simulation runs
  • Data interpretation and calibration
  • Exporting results for use in HEC-RAS

Outcome: On completion of the course attendees will be issued with a Certificate of Participation.
